Working with friends is always a pleasure, but commenting on an outstanding product of
friends is a greater pleasure. I have known Professors Aman Khan and W. Bartley Hildreth

occupied. Over those years, I worked with them on several projects and found a
great deal of joy in contributing with them to an improving literature of public budgeting
and financial management.

Suppose you are a rising star at work and the boss has given you your first assignment to head up
a project. Depending on the nature of the project and what kind of work you do, you might have to
engage in a variety of tasks that you haven't tackled before, such as assembling a team to
complete the project on time and on budget, mapping out a plan and monitoring your progress at
key steps along the way, using appropriate planning tools such as project management software
or wall charts, and keeping your team motivated and on target....
We decided to write this book when we discovered that a majority of the companies
we talked to had dysfunctional and low-value added processes for budgeting, fore-
casting, and financial reporting. And, as financial executives come and go, typically
little is done to streamline these processes. Even when large amounts of money are
invested in new financial software, the solutions are usually put in place based on
the old, inefficient routines.
Corporate financial managers continually invest funds in assets, and these assets produce income and cash flows that the firm can then either reinvest in more assets or distribute to the owners
of the firm. Capital investment refers to the firm’s investment in assets, and these investments may be either short term or long term in nature. Capital budgeting decisions involve the long-term commitment
of a firm’s scarce resources in capital investments. When such a decision is made, the firm is committed to a current and possibly future outlay of funds....

In beginning to write this chapter, I tried to find words to “sugar coat” the title. Perhaps the word
“budget” could be avoided altogether. Words like “financial map” or “operational guide” might be
suitable alternatives. After all, for those of you already in the workforce, you probably associate the
word “budget” with “dread” or “drudgery” or some other less than flattering term. No doubt, some
employees will question the need for a budget.
